DEWAR Electronics , has announced that a Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) switch for use in hostile industrial environments has been added to the range of GarrettCom industrial Ethernet products.

The hardened PS14P switch is the first industrial-spec switch to offer an IEEE 802.3af standards-compliant way to power and connect small devices such as IP phones, surveillance cameras, wireless access points and industrial sensors at the remote edges of an industrial network.

The PS14P switch is premium-rated for temperature-uncontrolled environments with a temperature rating of –40°C to 75°C, and resists dirt, moisture, and other threats from hostile industrial environments.

The GarrettCom Magnum PS14P switch has four PoE-enabled RJ45 ports that can drive 802.3af-compliant PDs as well as deliver 10/100 Mb data transmission over the same twisted-pair cable.

The PS14P switches have an auto-sensing algorithm that cuts off power when 802.3af-compliant devices are not attached. Proprietary PoE and non-PoE equipment are not recognised, which protects them from possible damage.

The PS14P switch supports the Power-over-Ethernet PSE standard for over-current protection, under-current detection, and fault protection.

The PS14P model is built with premium-grade extended temperature components suitable for use in sheltered outdoor locations. It uses GarrettCom’s patent-pending thermal techniques and is equipped with a robust metal case for durability.

Mounting options include stand-alone panel-mounting, DIN-rail, or rack-mount tray. No internal air flow is required for cooling, so the PS14P resists dust, dirt, moisture, smoke, and insects.

The GarrettCom Magnum PS14P PoE power source convenient switch and all other GarrettCom Magnum products are designed and manufactured in the USA and backed by a three-year warranty, and supplied by Dewar Electronics country wide.
